Coffee Enterprises has expanded its services to include chemical analysis to verify coffee and tea meet National Organic Product (NOP) Regulations.

Coffee Enterprises helps protect companies’ investments in coffee and tea quality through analytical evaluations by way of cupping, grading, food safety and chemical analysis technical services. The National Organic Program (NOP) is responsible for production, handling, labelling, and enforcement of all United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic products.

Confirming that coffee and tea products adhere to the NOP regulations throughout the supply chain, from farm to consumer, is essential for business and product trustworthiness. Coffee Enterprises now offers a quantitative chemical analysis measuring over 180 pesticides for coffee and tea products that will be sold, labelled or represented as “100% organic” or “organic.” Testing is conducted under Coffee Enterprises supervision at ISO/IEC 17025:2017 certified partner laboratories following NOP guidelines.

“Protecting the integrity of certified organic products is critical to business credibility,” says Spencer Turer, vice president of Coffee Enterprises.

Coffee Enterprises’ Pesticide Multi-Screen Package #4 (NOP) Test is an essential tool to verify that coffee and tea products adhere to USDA regulations for labelling. Organic agriculture is important for maintaining healthy soil, encouraging biodiversity, supporting animal health and welfare, and to reduce risks of exposure to synthetic chemicals.
